  • Bilby Budd? Never heard of him.

  • Sadly enough, that's how I read it just now, too.

    Say... wasn't there a film a few years ago based on Billy Budd? I think the sailors were in the French Foreign Legion. Hm. Melville... French film... obviously a classic.

  • The Indomitable was also named 'Bellipotent' in some drafts of the famous Melville novel. The classic was not published until over 25 years after Melville's death. It is a type of an 'unfinished' novella.
